From now on the class X exams in CBSE board schools have become optional. It is been said that the aim of education should be to educate children and not make them competitive by putting them under undue pressure. Do you think that such moves would really help the students or more attention should be paid towards their curriculum and kinds of subjects they are taught?

Well at least now the kids would not cram themselves with the same old repetitive notes. Education really does not depend on how much a student scores in his or her class X exams. And as you suggested it is more important to choose right kind of curriculum for the students. Instead of memorizing answers they should have sound knowledge of the subjects that they are dealing with. And since they would have to appear for their school final exams it would be good if the schools can arrange for surprise tests or quizzes on particular subjects. I guess these are better options than exams and students seem to learn more from tehse activities as well.
